BEYOND BOUNDARIES.

2020 Ducati Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak:

The Pikes Peak version – which draws its inspiration from the legendary American hill climb race – really brings out the sports character of the Multistrada 1260.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, also known as the “The Race to the Clouds”, is held in an area of the Rocky Mountains some 16 km west of Colorado Springs. A distance of 20 kilometres separates the starting line, at an altitude of 2,862 metres, from the finishing line at 4,300 m. It’s an incredibly tough competition: Ducati has already won it three times.

Developed on the technical foundations of the Multistrada 1260 S, the Pikes Peak version benefits from the 1262 cc Euro 4 compliant Ducati Testastretta DVT engine and new chassis dimensions, which include a new front end geometry and a longer swingarm. Along with a race-inspired colour scheme, the Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak comes equipped with new forged aluminium wheels, which are lighter than those of the Multistrada 1260 S. In addition, the bike is fitted with the Öhlins fork and Öhlins TTX36 shock, which can both be adjusted mechanically.

In addition to the silencer and nose fairing, fitted as standard, a carbon fibre Ducati Performance silencer by Termignoni (EU type-approved) and a low racing-type carbon fibre screen are also available for the Pikes Peak version. Further carbon fibre components include the front mudguard, hands free cover and front side panels, while the red-stitched seat has been specially designed to bring out this Multistrada’s racing spirit.

Thanks to the 1262 cc Euro 4 compliant Ducati Testastretta DVT engine, the Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak offers an even more enjoyable riding experience. 85% of the torque is in fact already available below 3,500 rpm with, compared to the previous model, 18% increase at 5,500 rpm. This makes the Multistrada 1260 the motorcycle in its category with the highest torque values at 4,000 rpm, that is the most frequently used rev range.

This level of performance is easy to manage too, thanks to the new Ride by Wire which allows for an even smoother fuel supply, and to the DQS (Ducati Quick Shift) Up & Down, which contributes to an improved riding experience thanks to seamless and accurate gear meshing during both upshifting and downshifting.

The Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak is equipped as standard with the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), developed by Bosch, which dynamically measures pitch and roll angles and acceleration along the 3 axes, raising performance and safety standards even further. Equipped with Cornering ABS, Cornering Lights (DCL) on the full-LED headlight, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Vehicle Hold Control (VHC) and Cruise Control, the Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak is a concentrate of technology that also features, as standard, a Bluetooth module; the latter, via the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), lets riders connect the bike to a smartphone and manage key multimedia functions (incoming calls, text messaging, music) via the switchgears and display information on the TFT dashboard, which has been renewed both in terms of graphics and logic.

Like other bikes in the family, the Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak can mount one or more Ducati Performance accessory packages. Also available – in addition to individual items – are the Touring Pack (which includes heated grips, panniers and centre stand), the Urban Pack (with top case, tank bag with tank lock and USB hub to charge electronic devices), the Enduro Pack (consisting of supplementary LED lights and Ducati Performance components by Touratech: engine crash bars, radiator crash bars, sump guard, a broader kickstand base and off-road footpegs).

2020 Ducati Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Expand your comfort zone
The new Multistrada 1260 truly maximizes the concept of versatility: The new 1262 cc Ducati Testastretta DVT engine extends powers even in low gear, the new chassis and cutting-edge electronics improve control and ease of driving in any condition and on any road.

The maximum on any road
New engine. Greater usability and control. The new Multistrada 1260 takes you into a brand new “comfort zone”, where the pleasure of driving becomes a sense of well-being, traveling is turned into an experience and performance becomes pure emotion.

Elegant and unique

The new Multistrada 1260 reaches completely new quality and finish standards. The sleek surfaces, flowing design, and graceful lines between the front and rear distinguish the aesthetics of the model. The new Y-shaped 5 spoke wheels complete the look and give the Multistrada 1260 a bold stance.

New Testastretta DVT 1262

The new Multistrada 1260 is equipped with a new Ducati Testastretta DVT 1262 cm3 Euro 4 engine making everyday use even more pleasurable thanks to increased torque at low and mid-range engine speeds. The new Multistrada 1260 has the highest available torque in it’s class at 4000 rpm, providing immediate and powerful acceleration.

Even more comfort for your travels

New chassis measurements including a longer swing arm, and new shape at the front end makes tackling curves much more effective and ensures maximum stability even with full panniers and a passenger aboard.

Technological reference point

The new Multistrada 1260 also stands as a technological point of reference. Maximum safety is achieved with the IMU (Inertial Management Unit) which manages the ABS and Cornering Light. Also included is the Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Wheelie Control, the highly acclaimed Skyhook suspension and the Vehicle Hold Control for easy uphill starts.

The road, a free mind

The new Multistrada 1260 has lengthened maintenance intervals. Oil changes are scheduled for every 15000 km, while the valve clearance should be inspected every 30000km (Desmo Service). The extended service intervals allow you to enjoy even the longest rides without any worries.
